As times have changed , so has our planet . Global warming has become a critical issue in today ‘s society , and it will not go away unless we do something about it . There are people all around the globe who have made the change and decided to be conscious of the health of our world Unfortunately however , it is not enough . As long as the majority of society continues to rely on fossil fuels, continues to waste energy and continues destroying forests , our planet will continue to suffer .
If we are to change the fate of our beautiful planet , society as a whole must take immediate action . To make the world a better place , we all should become environmental advocates , and take a stand to save humanity . We must make environmentally conscious changes in our own lives , teach those around us , and lead by example to make a difference . Above all else , every single person on the planet must change the way they live day to day . We must be aware of every potential harmful affect of every activity we engage in .
Every gallon of gas saved , light turned off , and computer unplugged will impact the future of the Earth Emissions from fossil fuels are the cause of global warming , and presently our society relies on these fossil fuels to function on a daily basis . By carpooling , walking , turning off the air conditioner and unplugging appliances that we are not using , we can each save a substantial amount of energy . If everyone does just a little , it will add up to a lot Next we should each take the initiative to teach others about the importance of being environmentally conscious .
Some people do not understand how critical global warming has become , and therefore , can only change by learning . Others do not realize how easy it is to make small changes in life that will make a big difference , such as switching to energy efficient light bulbs . If we all would simply casually mention energy saving tips to our families , friends , and co-workers , or even strangers in the light bulb aisle , we can really affect the thinking of those around us Finally , we can lead the way by setting a good example ourselves People do as they see more often then as they are told .
If our children friends , and even strangers see us saving energy or planting trees , they are likely to follow our lead . If enough people become example setters the idea of living green will become a trend . Just as we strive to be fashionable by what we see on the television or in magazines , if we are constantly bombarded by stories and images of people saving the planet more people will strive to fit in . Every single person counts , and if we can set a responsible example for even one person , it is worth the effort
